Take Action on Finger Lakes

The winter of 2013/2014 reinforced that the propane industry needs more storage.  As a result of limited storage infrastructure in the Northeast and elsewhere, many marketers were forced to travel long distances to obtain supply.  This led to strained supply in those regions, creating a domino effect of tight supply, higher prices, and worried customers. 

We need your help NOW to tell New York Governor Cuomo that it is time to approve the Finger Lakes Storage Facility project.   If the Finger Lakes facility had been in operation this winter, an additional 88.2 million gallons of propane would have been available to meet consumer needs.

We need you to help spread the word that additional, safe storage, like the Finger Lakes facility, is critical.  Here’s how you can help:

1.       Visit www.nypropaneadvocacy.com and sign a petition created by the New York Propane Gas Association to pressure Gov. Cuomo to take action. 
          Share this link with your employees, post it on your company’s website, and even include it in your email signature block.

2.       Click here to download a copy of a bill stuffer to send to your customers as part of your invoicing process. 

3.       Click here to download an advocacy form-letter to be sent to Governor Cuomo’s office among your employees and customers: 

Complete the letter with your information and with the appropriate tone (either customer/owner language included in the letter);

Hand sign the letter;

Fax a copy to his DC office: 202-434-7110;

Mail a copy to both the Governor and DEC commissioner.

4.       Contact your Members of Congress (and urge your customers to do the same) Increased storage capability is a goal we can acheive together! 
  • Tell your representative and senators to send a “Dear Colleague” letter to their New York colleagues urging action on Finger Lakes.  Let them know that action by Governor Cuomo could help us avoid another cold and challenging winter.
